Mr. President, When Should I Expect Your Call?

Dear President Obama,

You don’t know my telephone number, but I hope your staff is busy trying to find it. Ever since you called Sandra Fluke after Rush Limbaugh called her a slut, I figured I might be next.  You explained to reporters you called her because you were thinking of your two daughters, Malia and Sasha.  After all, you didn’t want them to think it was okay for men to treat them that way:

“One of the things I want them to do as they get older is engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them on,” you said.  “I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way. And I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names because they’re being good citizens.”

And I totally agree your kids should be able to speak their minds and engage the culture.  I look forward to seeing what good things Malia and Sasha end up doing with their lives.

But here’s why I’m a little surprised my phone hasn’t rung.  Your $1,000,000 donor Bill Maher has said reprehensible things about my family.  He’s made fun of my brother because of his Down’s Syndrome. He’s said I was “f—-d so hard a baby fell out.”  (In a classy move, he did this while his producers put up the cover of my book, which tells about the forgiveness and redemption I’ve found in God after my past – very public — mistakes.)

If Maher talked about Malia and Sasha that way, you’d return his dirty money and the Secret Service would probably have to restrain you.  After all, I’ve always felt you understood my plight more than most because your mom was a teenager.  That’s why you stood up for me when you were campaigning against Sen. McCain and my mom — you said vicious attacks on me should be off limits.

Yet I wonder if the Presidency has changed you.  Now that you’re in office, it seems you’re only willing to defend certain women.  You’re only willing to take a moral stand when you know your liberal supporters will stand behind you.

But…

What if you did something radical and wildly unpopular with your base and took a stand against the denigration of all women… even if they’re just single moms? Even if they’re Republicans?

I’m not expecting your SuperPAC to return the money.  You’re going to need every dime to hang on to your presidency.  I’m not even really expecting a call.  But would it be too much to expect a little consistency?  After all, you’re President of all Americans, not just the liberals.

    Bravo. How much has Letterman donated? How about Jon Stewart?

    Obama is a hypocrite who immediately phoned Ms. Fluke for the terrible comments about her by Rush but totally ignored far worse, really vile unprintable, names he called Republican women (like Bristol Palin) made by his millionaire leftist supporters. Is that clear enough proof for you dim bulb Obamabots? If you only keep up with the main stream media you’re getting less than half the truth. Search it on the internet and you’ll quickly see the proof about Obama’s unequal treatment of conservative women and their abuse by leftists. Obama didn’t call Bristol names, that’s not the point. Get your head out of the sand. The point is he only cares about the abuse of liberal women like Fluke who by the way was not the innocent she claimed to be but a shill for Pelosi and her minion. Libs are all about lies and painting false pictures for gullible Americans to swallow.

    I just can’t help myself…Jordan you are a perfect example of a liberal idiot! I have never called names before, but you cannot even see the hypocrisy that oozes from your statement.

  • Rachel Ray Bell

    This really bothers me. I don’t understand how he can get away with that when anyone else would be slaughtered. Praying for you and your family as always. Even if you don’t agree with someone’s views, it doesn’t mean you talk about them like that!

    Bill Maher being a comedian absolves him of nothing, if u don’t like his JOKES then don’t listen to them, and to the guy who said we don’t make jokes about minorities anymore; Do you listen to standup? I hear white guys doing black jokes, str8′s doing gay jokes, Jews doing Jew jokes… Comedy is just as blue as it always has been…. If you don’t like what is said, don’t listen.

    Hey Bristol — You have no moral or legal obligation to publish the hateful comments of the left. In fact, I argue that you might have a moral obligation not to publish simply to teach them that freedom of speech is not free. To be sure, why should you pay for the bandwidth that so that others may abuse you?

    Bristol, you did this in a way only you could. So many of us come to the defense of folks like you who are under attack from the Left; it’s a great thing to see you stand up for yourself with clarity, sense, and irrefutable reason.
